PE 1670: Adirondack Canoe Camping - Fall Break

Canoeing on a lake

Experience the Adirondacks at their finest during Fall Break. Encounter first hand what makes this place so spectacular: magnificent mountain landscapes scattered with changing fall colors, numerous lakes and waterways to paddle, starry skies to camp out under and the call of loons as they echo across the lakes. Your instructors will teach you the skills you will need to have an enjoyable canoe camping experience including paddling technique, portaging (carrying boats & gear between lakes), navigation, backcountry cooking, and various other canoe camping skills.
